Annym Billagh Workshop by Bendis

groveAnnym Billagh is an ancient system of healing, originating from my ancestral path with roots in the British Isles, specifically, the Isle of Man and Scotland. It is based on the knowledge that we are all One, living in a world supported by the Earth at our feet, the Sea from which all life comes, and the Sky, source of our breath, inspired by the Fire of Inspiration, blessed by all that is Divine.

awen ‘Annym’ means: inspiration, muse, genius, poetic frenzy, a fluid or flowing, a living principle, a being, a spirit, and the essential. ‘Billagh’ is a tree or a woody grove of trees.

Every object in the physical realm holds this spirit or Annym. Every tree, bird, animal, reptile, fish, every blade of grass and every other thing we know or can dream of holds within its own Annym, all part of the greater whole. Annym is not born, and never dies.

We connect to the Annym of the Earth by drawing her power through us, becoming “agents” of her healing. We connect to the Annym of our tree kindred, seeking their specific healing energies generously shared with us. Annym spiritually awakens and restores balance for those who are depleted or out of balance or in a state of “dis-ease”, blocked or hindered in their ability to achieve wholeness, happiness, and joy in all aspects of their lives. Annym awakens, invigorates, and inspires.

Annym Billagh consists of inner work with the ancient Cauldrons of Poesy, breathing and meditation, hands-on energy healing, internal use and topical application of the essences of the trees, Ogham letters as healing symbols, and working with our kindred, the trees and stones, for integrating wholeness and well-being into our lives.

While the methods shared here will work, when the practitioner takes the time to really know the trees and becomes one with the trees and their healing energy, then, and only then do these methods become totally integrated into the lives of those touched.
